The Power of Stories


Location: Roger B. Francis Branch, St. Joseph County Public Library

Explore the role stories play in our lives through an exploration of Spanish artist Jaume Plensa’s sculpture Tale Teller VII, and the stories shared by Bryan Stevenson in Just Mercy.

A partnership between the Francis Branch and the Snite Museum of Art at the University of Notre Dame, this program will bring together the work of visual and verbal storytellers. Through close looking, thoughtful reflection, small group discussions, and hands-on creating, we will make connections between different modes of storytelling and consider the power of stories to change our lives and the world.

NOTE: This program takes place at the Roger B. Francis Branch of the St. Joseph County Public Library. The branch is located at 52655 North Ironwood Road.
